WWE and AEW’s Wednesday Night War started in October 2019 as AEW Dynamite and NXT went head-to-head every week in order to see who would come out the better show. AEW Dynamite would win in the ratings war for the majority of the time. The Wars finally came to an end in April after NXT moved to Tuesday nights. People like Jim Ross believed it was a cop out.
WWE has been on a mission to release as many talents and members of staff as possible. This all started in April with the release of Superstars such as Mickie James and Chelsea Green. It ultimately led to the likes of Bray Wyatt, Aleister Black and more releases. The latest NXT releases saw the likes of Bronson Reed and Bobby Fish getting released as well.
According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Triple H is being blamed for losing the Wednesday Night Wars, which WWE were certain they would win. His detractors, who are worried about their positions if he takes over from Vince McMahon, are using the opportunity as ammunition to convince Vince McMahon that he isn’t the right man for the job.
Paul Levesque is being blamed backstage for not winning the Wednesday night wars which WWE thought they would win easily. His detractors who fear for their position if he takes power are using the opportunity to denigrate NXT with released wrestlers being pawns in the power struggle.
It was previously reported that the recent mass releases from NXT are part of the brand’s rebranding and the Vince McMahon plans to turn NXT into a developmental ground like Ohio Valley Wrestling. We wonder what will become of Triple H after the recent incidents.
